  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very, very good, but there's much better old Bunnahabhain out there. This one lacks a certain old-schoolness for a whisky from the 1960's, and the palate can't quite keep up with the excellent nose.
    • Nose
      Light and delicate with subtle oak and a little less subtle fruits, like peaches, nectarines, pineapple, oranges and also green apple. Some light vanilla custard and the slightest touch of aniseed.
    • Taste
      Somewhat oily. Sweet sherry notes with a malty touch. Mild brown sugar, caramel and a whiff of mocha. Some bitter oak and a light spiciness.
    • Finish
      Light tannins and a slight bitterness transforms into a sweeter, fruitier ending.

    Pretty OK but indeed not very special for a Bunna 68

  5. MrRancho scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nice dry, woody whisky. To be fair, one has to say that the nose is very promising, but the taste can not keep these promises.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, chocolate, herbal tea, meat broth, orange, sweet tobacco, leather, daisies.
    • Taste
      Dry, wood, salt, walnut, a little ash.
    • Finish
      Medium long, woody, cocoa.

  10. peathead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's a good dram, but not a stunner.
    • Nose
      In the nose it's not so clear but palate it is: refill sherry.  The nose is very subtle, slightly fruity.
    • Taste
      The taste is almost the same.  A little bit of water makes the fruit rise more to the surfact but that's it.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, soft and very pleasant.
